Our Classes and Events

Our primary mission is to bring art to the community.  One way we do this is to offer our services and talent and by giving you the opportunity to open and explore your creative chi. Our classes are taught by experts in their field who enjoy teaching and watching students take the artful journey and be surprised at what they can do.
